THE ECO FLAT WINE BOTTLE

Advancing the wine bottle into the 21st century

A better, more sustainable bottle that has a lower carbon footprint, slashes supply chain costs and offers ultimate consumer convenience.

“The humble wine bottle has been through various iterations since it was first developed in 3,000 BC – but none rival a new design for sheer 21st century convenience.”
SAFFRON ALEXANDER, THE TELEGRAPH

Shape innovation

Hard-to-beat space savings that cut costs in transport and lower carbon footprint

Best-in-class material

Recycled, lightweight and food-grade PET, saving weight and energy

Recyclable by design

Easily, fully and widely recyclable after use to help mitigate waste

The existing carbon footprint of wine is unsustainable... No single action would make more difference in the wine world than the swift adoption of bottles like this for every wine designed to be drunk on purchase (most wine, in other words)
— ANDREW JEFFORD, DECANTER

Shape Innovation

By challenging the base assumption that wine bottles should be round, we're unlocking game-changing space savings that have a tangible, positive impact on the transportation, retailing and storage of wine in multiple business settings and consumers' homes

Hey Good Looking

Modern, emotive, traditional

Beautiful bottle design inspired by traditional shapes to respect industry heritage and still look like the shapes consumers know and love.
“...the most striking of the recent innovations in this [wine] sector…”

STANDARD 75CL

Full-size wine bottle

Packed with presence, containing the standard volume of wine that consumers expect.

“I love the aesthetics of the bottle, its stackability, its low carbon footprint and its practicality…”

UNIQUELY FLAT

Fit more wine in the same space

With up to 91% more wine on a pallet in transport and warehousing, hard-to-beat space savings cut your business costs and carbon emissions in the supply chain, while your consumers will love fitting more wine in their fridge.

WHY flat IS more sustainable
ATTENTION-GRABBING LABEL SURFACE

Ideal for visual merchandising

Your consumers won’t miss a thing in-store or online with the eye-catching shape and unique, larger label surface for messaging, which ultimately drives sales.

“When it comes to the world of wine, the future is flat”

SPECIALLY DEVELOPED BASE

Superior stability

A low centre of gravity, prominent lip and 5.5 degree tip angle allows even an empty bottle to remain stable if the surface the bottle is standing on is knocked. The tip angle is the same as the Leaning Tower of Pisa - which is still standing.

“...this is a product that feels like the future. It is a really smart design...”
— National Recycling Awards Judging Panel 2019

Best-in-class Material

Our material choice offers best-in-class sustainability for how wine bottles are transported around the globe in the 21st century, without compromising on the health of mother nature or the quality of your wines inside

100% recycled PET

Plastic smart, not single-use plastic

Made from strong, pre-existing PET that's more energy-efficient than glass and has a lower carbon footprint, plus it puts material already in circulation back to good use to limit the amount of new plastic created.

"A real gem in the circular economy transition!"
JOSH Poole, CNS MEDIA

“Flat wine bottles are environmentally smart, look slick as hell”

HOW WE'RE LOWERING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
FOOD-SAFE, BPA-FREE MATERIAL

No impact on wine quality

PET is a stable, inert material that does not react with food or beverages, has no impact on taste and is BPA-free. To prove it, the material we use is certified food-grade to USA and EU standards, making it good enough to eat. Almost.

BARRIER TECHNOLOGY

More than a year's shelf life

Advanced barrier technology suitable for everyday drinking wines that will keep your wines in quality condition for longer than it takes consumers to purchase and drink them.

Recyclability by Design

Making clever choices in the design process to ensure our bottles are fully, easily and widely recyclable, helping mitigate waste

100% Recyclable

Easily, fully and widely recyclable after use

PET is the most widely recycled plastic on the planet. Specially selected plastic caps and labels ensure our bottles are a dream for both consumers and recycling facilities as all components pass through the same recycling stream. This helps mitigate waste and litter to ensure they're kind on the planet.

HOW WE're Tackling plastic pollution

NATURAL WINE COLOURS

Different colours for different wines

Elegant, consumer-pleasing and recognisable wine bottle colours to hide the cloudiness of 100% recycled PET, but won’t impact recycling.

“Its genius is in its simplicity, but yet within that simplicity are solutions to complex design and engineering, clever messaging, safe distribution, and environmental responsibility.”
— DAVID LUTTENBERGER, GLOBAL PACKAGING DIRECTOR, MINTEL

The brand and messaging are important to consumers

The flat panels of our bottles, on both the front and back, allow for a uniquely larger, flat, surface for labels which promotes clearer communication of the brand to consumers.
